How It Works
Become A spaceblock Host
Property hosts are opening their doors to organizers looking for creative venues and shoot spaces. spaceblock provides a platform for space hosts to connect with the creative industry. We provide a solution for hosts to showcase their spaces and earn some additional income.
Registering your location is free. Guests will pay a fair rate for the right location. Hiring out your property as a shoot / event location is an easy, hassle-free, fun way to earn extra income. It doesn’t have to be as intrusive as you may think. The benefits are not only about the financial gain, but also the experience of seeing the creative process take place, seeing your property transformed into a set, and even sometimes it’s the thrill of having a celebrity in your home.
Even if you are are trying to lease your property to a long term tenant, we can showcase your property to the creative industry and bring you the returns you are looking for. We bring you a quick, short term solution while you search for a long term tenant.
Our clients are film, video, photographers, ad agencies, media companies, event planners and everyday people, like you and me. They’re all looking for the perfect location. This could be a music video, a fashion shoot, a scene from a TV series or movie, a wedding, in fact, it could be literally any space requirement that needs a specific location property.
